Give Garden, unlike some of our competitors, is not a meal replacement program. Give Garden is a creative activity designed to bring the family together around the dinner table. At times your recipe delivery will include all the ingredients to prepare an entree, but other times it will contain ingredients for a side item or dessert. Each month prior to your recipe delivery we will email you suggestions on how to incorporate entrees or sides, as well as, adult beverages that might pair well with the recipe in your delivery.
Give Garden is a hand-delivered activity designed to engage your family in creativity and introduce NEW flavors to ignite the senses. We do not want families to just pick items they are familiar with, but rather be open to the adventure of trying new things. We have designed each recipe to reflect the season in which it is being delivered in. Enjoy the adventure and discover food loves you never knew your family would crave!
The gadgets selected for the Give Garden program were hand selected to build a solid assortment of supplies any young chef needs. We envision that our young chefs will take pride in owning their own set of kitchen tools. We have also strategically selected gadgets that support upcoming recipe delivery. Your children will be so excited to open the surprise when the hand-delivered fun arrives!
Give Garden was developed by a Registered Dietitian. Each month you will receive an email prior to your recipe box arrival that gives some details about the exciting recipe delivery ahead. We will specifically include information about whether the recipe is vegetarian or gluten-free. We will often make suggestions on how to alter the recipe to accommodate a vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free diet.
Food allergies are a common issue with children. Each month prior to your recipe delivery we will email details about the upcoming recipe and specifically highlight any ingredients that are common allergens. Although we cannot exclude any ingredients from your box that might be of concern we feel it important to keep you informed. As long as the allergy is not severe or that just being near the allergen would be of detriment, we encourage the child with the allergy to still participate in the activity but refrain from consuming the product once prepared. There is still great value in participating in the activity, such as bonding, nutrition education, cooking education, and engagement with hands-on creativity. The fact that most can eat the activity when done is just a bonus.
A Party Pack is available for purchase a la carte or comes free once a year with an Executive Chef Membership. It is designed to help you host a party for 4 guests at your home. It comes with all the ingredients and gadgets to allow each guest to become a chef for the day. Directions are included to help the host set up the activity prior to the guests arriving, how to guide guests through the activity when they arrive, and how to take the leftovers and many of the gadgets home as gifts. It's perfect for an upcoming birthday party, sleepover, family event, or girl/boy scout meeting. Order multiple sets to accommodate parties of more than 4 guests.
Food safety is of utmost importance with Give Garden. Our recipe boxes are assembled in commercial kitchens with strict food safety criteria. Ingredients are stored in proper temperature zones prior to delivery and our drivers track the temperature of the box prior to it's arrival. Once the ingredients are assembled together in their box on delivery day our drivers typically deliver the product to your doorstep within 6 hours or less. Our delivery process is tested to maintain proper temperatures for up to 18 hours. This gives you plenty of time to scoop up your delivery from your doorstep and begin the activity right away or store the components for up-to 5 days.
